Hello Ruben,

Any chance of me getting a small sample of The SmX CineWeave material? I'm considering going this route in the future and would like a look at the material in person.

Thanks,
Tom

Gonna order some of the material this evening, but....can you explain quick why to order extra to adjust for moire'..... Is this so you can slightly rotate the material before you mount it in your frame? I thought there was one way to mount it to avoid moire'

Well,

After a couple weeks of waiting, my shipment of one SMX Pro-Frame and Cineweave material is due at my house today!!! I can't wait to get home and start putting it together. Once I get it done, I'll take some pics!

Thanks for the sample Ruben. I received it yesterday. It looks like this will be the route I will take when I start building my new theater room. Just waiting for the house to be complete at the end of August.

Ruben asked if I would post this here after posting it on the SMX forums, so here it is

Some pics of the SMX up in the basement HT (Click on photos to enlarge)

Here is the screen it is a 138" diagonal 16:9 . I couldn't have gone much larger.



Here is the screen showing how the subs will be mounted in the future. I'll be laying them on their sides so the bass doesn't effect the screen when I'm using it. I'm hoping the installers will be in to do this work soon I'd like to get the kinks with the audio worked out soon in the system and get everything running 100%.




A few screen shots (I still haven't figured out how to take really good screen shots ...yet.)



Close to the SMX - color is uniform even at extreme angles





Here I am for some perspective of size. The 333 even with over 1000 hours on it is so bright you can hardly stand in front of it (like I'm trying to do )



Cheers
Calvin

Sweet!

Do you know if Cliff is using a CIH setup? If so, is he just zooming in for those pics or using a scaler and lens?

BTW my material showed up today. It appears to be in great condition. Thanks for the last chance to order.

Cliff has a 16:9 SmX screen I believe. He probably just zoomed in and out.

That was actually my RS1 at Cliffs house he has a G90 CRT Stack at this time he is not doing CIH nor am I. We had to take the screen shots from the side because of the way we had to setup the RS1. It was where he usually takes shots from.

Ruben,

Yes, I got the screen built up and sitting in the screen niche area. I'm getting a wide angle lens for my digital camera today and I'll take some pics tonight and post them tomorrow for sure. One thing I'm doing tomorrow and so I might wait and take pictures after I do it, is I bought a bunch of the fidelio velvet (I'm guessing the same you use for the pro-line frames), and I'm going to be backing my entire screen niche with it minus the speaker locations. My plan is that when I mount the screen in there, it'll really look like a black hole. So I'll probably try to get some comparison pics done of before and after the velvet.
I also just got my RS1 in as well and I'm just waiting on my Prismasonic FE1500R to arrive anytime. Should be mostly up and running pretty soon so I'll try and get some screenshots as well!

Ruben, the pro-line frame and quality is amazing. I'm definately recommending your screens to anyone I know doing a home theater. Thanks again for your help and service.

As far as the screen shots above go, how did you guys get footage of POC3 and Shrek3? I'd love to get those for viewing as well.

Im very interested in this screen.... couple questions if you dont mind:

1) Your screen has a 1.16 gain. What would be the equivalent gain on a non AT screen taking into account the light loss of your AT screen?
2) Is your masking system also AT? Is it electric or manual?
3) What distance away do I have to sit in order to guarantee not seeing the weave?
4) What screen sizes are available?
5) What is the width of your frames?
Thanks!

Thanks!

1) The screen loses about 6.5 percent of light due to the perfs.

2) The motorized masking system comes in AT and Non AT, it is an electric masking system.

3) Eyes vary, most people can't detect the weave 3' - 4' from the screen.

4) Screen sizes range from 80" wide up to 24' wide. We do all aspect ratios.

5) Frames are 3.5" wide by 1.77" deep. Full specs on the frames Can be seen HERE or the Pro-Line white paper is HERE

Thanks
Ruben

OK,

I'm just now uploading a bunch of pictures of my new SMX 2.35 screen! I've also got some with screen shots etc. I'm going to set up a link to imagestation where at least I can place all of the pics I have in there.

I'll be back in a few with the link.
